sold: one domestic goddess
Now Playing: ambient sound recorded by phil ivens
Topic: exhibitions

the collectors' exhibition 08 catalogue

Tonight I headed down to the opening of the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria's "Collectors' Exhibition" opening at Steps Gallery in Carlton. I didn't know anyone else who had work included in the show, and being a Sunday night I didn't hold too much hope of friends turning out, though I knew Chris had mentioned coming along.

Shortly after my arrival I came across him and we nattered and checked out the art. On getting to my work I found some folk closely eyeing both images and the page dedicated to me in the catalogue (as above). Chris mentioned they'd been doing that for a while.

Of course I was pleased, but ever the "don't count your chickens" girl, I moved back around the exhibition and we perused other work, discussed other photographic stuffs, sampled the finger food and grabbed another glass of red.

I only noticed three photographs in the whole exhibition, and two of those were my own.

After conversation in the foyer, we returned to the show and out of curiosity I went to check my work, only to find a lovely red spot by Domestic Goddess!

Although this isn't my first print sold, it is my first print sold in a gallery show, and on the opening night, no less, so I am quite chuffed.

Here's hoping that my other print will sell too :D

mooncruise* magazine
Now Playing: pulp - freaks
Topic: mooncruise* magazine

untitled #9 [cape paterson]

Well, it's been somewhat delayed as you'll be able to tell from the images included by me and the "featured work" description referring to my hope to exhibit the work as "my first solo show", but mooncruise* magazine have finally released their new issue!

11 of the final 12 images that made up my solo show are included, along with 7 other images that didn't make the cut and which I have not previously posted online at all.

The issue includes a wide range of work, from ultra-stylish fashion through gritty black and whites to very personal polaroids (and some of them "not safe for work").

Easiest way to navigate through the magazine is to click on the names on the right then choose "slide mode on" or "slide mode off" depending on your preference (if you choose "off", clicking on the black squares under the images will move you from one image to the next).

There's also some nice ambient music to enjoy whilst your eyes feast upon the images, but if you're at work or not into that sort of thing you can turn it off.

And if you wander further afield there is a gallery and A fashionmagazine* also on the site.

Zoe's smiling because I've recently edited this wonderful photo of her for inclusion
in my (soon-to-be-live) update of the facade section of my website.

I'm smiling because five of my images have been included in Phirebrush Release #61.
They are on the first page of the photography section.

And the Phirebrush team are smiling because this issue marks their sixth year! Happy anniversary guys!

disclaimer: i think this may be my cheesiest post ever

lucky 13

I'm currently updating my website (the changes aren't live yet) and I wanted to replace one of the images in the facade section that I didn't feel was very strong. In the course of selecting what to replace it with I decided to re-edit one of my images of Karen from the night I photographed her for Litmus Journal's "The Mistress" and my own series, "Frankly, My Deer...", a continuation of my Ladies of Leisure series.

At one stage last year I remember thinking to myself that my post-processing skills had improved greatly since I'd done this shoot with Karen and that at some point it would be interesting to go back and re-edit a couple of shots and see how much better they would now come up.

I'm still very happy with the main image from the "Frankly, My Deer..." series, which has been exhibited around town and is currently at the Toyota Community Spirit Gallery, but some of the others like the one above I had not been able to edit to a standard that I felt really happy with. However, I am now quite happy with this edit, much more so than the original edit.

*contended sigh*

I told you I had photos of other things and other people to edit and go through now that I've finished my 365.

Though you can't tell from the above image, the second shot is of Daffy the Duck who seems to believe that he's a dog. He pants and wags his tail just like a dog and is actually quite difficult to get a still shot of because of this.

These various creatures were photographed whilst visiting Aer and Mike in the first week of January.
